PODTHINGY: The Best Geek Podcast You Haven’t Listened to Yet

Podthingy MAIN

Proof they’ll give anyone a podcast these days.


Full disclosure from the get-go: yes I’m a member of the Podthingy podcast and yes I’m completely and utterly biased. So sue me! (Not in the literal sense of course. Taking legal action against me will get you nowhere, unless you fancy inheriting my credit card bills.)

Upon second glance, it’s worth noting that the title of this blog isn’t entirely accurate. There are indeed more than a few of you out there who tune into the alcoholic tomfooleries of the Podthingy gang each week. Unfortunately, there are still a couple (million) people here and there who still haven’t received the memo. (Please don’t make us take your red stapler away!)

As luck would have it, it’s not too late for you and your fellow non-followers to jump on board the Podthingy bandwagon. Not only are we 20 shows strong, but we are growing stronger by the episode! In fact, we were just joined in episode 20 by the fierce yet lovely Lina Carollo (@TheLinaCarollo), who won (yes, won!) ABC’s ground-breaking reality show called The Quest! If that isn’t enough to pique your curiosity, we have a veteran actor of the small and big screens joining us for episode 21 which will be live on Tuesday, September 16th. I can’t reveal any names yet, but I’ll give you two and a half guesses to try and figure it out!

For those completely unfamiliar with Podthingy, the concept is pretty straightforward. Horror author John Mulhall, Idiot Stare lead singer Blayne Alexander, NerdBFF Hot Nerd Girl and myself all sit around the ol’ nerd campfire (aka the recording studio) to discuss the latest and greatest in geek pop culture while also numbing our livers with a newly concocted adult beverage every week. It’s a rough job, but somebody’s got to do it. Which is why we skipped the job and decided to podcast instead!
